This Takes The Cake

The government of Singapore is advising its population that chocolate cake from Prima Deli, a bakery chain, is contaminated with Salmonella enteritidis, and should not be eaten. This cake has claimed 106 victims to date, with six of the victims needing hospitalization.

Salmonella enteritidis is the most common contaminant of intact shell eggs. Either there was a gross lapse of good sanitation practices in the bakery kitchen, or the cakes were decorated with an icing that contained raw egg.
